2022 Department of Transportation Agency Random Drug & Alcohol Testing Rates 

* The new Federal Railroad Administration Rules are in effect 6/12/2017.  MOW employees will be tested at a higher rate initially starting June 12, 2017. Click Here for full details. 

NOTE: Employers (and C/TPAs) subject to more than one DOT Agency drug and alcohol testing rule may continue to combine covered employees into a single random selection pool. However, companies (and C/TPAs) doing so  must test at or above the  highest minimum annual random testing rates established by the DOT Agencies under whose jurisdiction they fall. Contact the appropriate DOT Agency for additional clarification. You may find the Department of Transportation Agency contact numbers here (click).

[Please note that United States Coast Guard-covered employees may be combined with DOT covered employees in drug testing pools even though the USCG is now part of the Department of Homeland Security.]
